Results, Santa Anita Saturday Race 1 — no bet

save-moneyWhen #2 Atta’ Girl scratched, I could tell that I probably would not be betting on this race. And sure enough, my other possible overlay #8 Juicy Lucy went off at odds of 7-to-5, while I was waiting for 3-to-1.

The favorite here, #4 Golden Rocketship, was able to win while never being challenged because jockey Joel Rosario slowed her down on the lead. She strolled through fractions of 23.28 seconds for the first quarter mile and 47.15 seconds for the half mile then won easily.

Golden Rocketship, who is trained by John Salder, paid $4.60 and I ended up making no wager.
